Meet Lop Narupai! Does the name and face look familiar?..That’s because Lop is Phon’s twin brother! Lop’s wrap sheet and fighting history is quite similar to Phon’s, as they were known as the superstar twin fighters back in their prime. Lop was consistently within the top 5 rankings at both Lumpini and Rajadamnern Stadiums back in his prim, and was known for his technical skill and high fight IQ / intelligence, just like Phon!
